The renowned pianist Alice Sommer is 104 years-old, and lives in London. She experienced and witnessed most of the significant events of the 20th century: World War I, The Inflation, World War II, the Holocaust, the Liberation, Communism, Emigration, and more. FROM HELL TO PARADISE documents what makes Alice Sommer so special, and how the spirit of music has shaped and inspired her life; how the music helped her to survive the ghetto of the Terezin (Theresienstadt) and recover mentally and physically from the loss of her husband and almost her entire family. Brought up in Prague; educated in German culture; living and working in Israel for 37 years, and currently living in London, Mrs. Sommer's passion for life is tremendous and admirable.
